Cash donations to people in need

When you donate to charity, do you know how much of your money reaches its destination? Do you know the impact of your donation? Do you feel that your small donations have little impact?

CroMiDo steps in to help out. We use mobile technology to create transparency, allowing you to donate small sums directly to the people who need it most. With one click you can make someone’s day on the other side of the world!

We are CroMiDo

We are currently in the initial start-up phase of our non-profit organisation. We are looking for partnerships and are working on raising more funds. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you believe you can help us with your expertise and feel free to contact us if you have questions regarding the project.

Help us help people, one donation at a time!

The Idea

We want to contribute to reducing world poverty.

We like to aim high, but our idea is based entirely on existing technologies. The popularity of mobile money transfers in Africa is the cornerstone of CroMiDo‘s success.

CroMiDo was the winner of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University’s 2012 I WILL award. This award came with €15,000 of seed money. The award money will entirely go towards the realization of the project.

You too can help. Learn how to get involved or consider making a donation that will help us realise our vision.

M-Pesa, the mobile money transfer system that was introduced to the African market in 2007 by a company called Safaricom, an affiliate of Vodafone, is the cornerstone to CroMiDo’s success. The system enables its users to take control of their finances with mobile banking services that were previously only available at traditional banks.

Mobile banking systems have tens of millions subscribers in Kenya alone, giving their users access to banking services for the first time in their life. M-Pesa is very popular among CroMiDo‘s target demographic. It provides a mobile payment tool that is safe, with very low access barriers, and is extremely simple to use.

Market penetration of mobile banking systems in Africa far exceeds that of similar systems in traditional, developed markets.

The Name
